Penkhull Lights Switch on - 7th December 2015
Thank you for the enormous contribution made by you and Penkhull Village Brass to the success of the Outdoor Carol Service held in Penkhull Churchyard. The playing was brilliant and ensured that everyone could enjoy singing along with the well-known carols. For many, it would be their only chance to do that during the Advent/Christmas Season.
Please convey the thanks of Rev Chris Rushton and all who were present, to the band members for giving up their time and helping to make the Service so memorable.

Friends of Penkhull Village Hall event - 17th November 2015
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for two splendid performances at Sunday's Beach Party. I'm always impressed with the sound you make and it's good to hear the repertoire expanding so rapidly.
It was so good of you all to give up your day and I hope you had as much fun as we all did.
The day was a great success, with lots of people signing up to be Friends and signing the petition. If any of your supporters want to sign up they can do so at the community cafe on Thursdays or use the link on our facebook page.
Thanks again, looking forward to the Christmas concert!
